A brown water advisory was issued this morning for the Island of Maui following heavy rains resulting in stormwater runoff entering into coastal waters.

The state Department of Health, Clean Water Branch advises the public to stay out of flood waters and storm water runoff “due to possible overflowing cesspools, sewer, manholes, pesticides, animal fecal matter, dead animals, pathogens, chemicals, and associated flood debris.”

Not all coastal areas may be impacted by runoff, however, if the water is brown the public is advised to stay out.
